There's a very real upper limit on price for a track-only car since you can literally buy super high-end race cars. Heck, you can even buy old F1 cars.

This car has to be road legal, otherwise what's the point?

It is much easier for companies like VAG and Mercedes to produce a new custom street car than for a McLaren to do so. It seems like MB introduce more new models a year than McLaren has made in their lifetime. They have massive global resources at their disposal so they can brute-force approvals, afford extra crash testing, and pull from their incredible parts bins. Even Ferrari now typically won’t deviate from the road cars very much for their custom cars. Eric Clapton’s car for example, except for typical custom interior materials and colors (no different than what MSO would offer) over a completely normal 458 interior, is mechanically a bone stock 458 underneath it’s custom skin. And it’s really just a custom skin. I’d bet even the glass is still stock 458.
